As experienced Flagstaff car wreck attorneys, we were deeply saddened and shocked by the death of one person and injuries to two others in a crash that took place May 29, according to reports by KPHO News. The collision took place when a car driving on Highway 89A lost control and moved into the lanes of oncoming traffic late that night. The car was sliding across the highway sideways when it was struck by another vehicle. The driver of the first vehicle was killed in the impact of the crash. The passenger in that vehicle and the driver of the other were both injured in the Flagstaff fatal car crash. Police have not indicated the cause of the car accident, but speed and alcohol have not been reported as possible contributing factors.
Our thoughts are with the family of the person who died and with those who were injured and we hope that everyone heals quickly.
